Artifacts is a hidden jewel in the fabulous shops at Village Center Lake Tahoe. This shop has an exquisite collection of art, artifacts, fossils, jewelry, kaleidoscopes, kimono’s, woven textiles, rocks and much more. The art lover will most appreciate the eclectic work of handmade items that fill the shelves and walls.
The DeRubeis Gallery will have patrons stopping in awe at the muses of Chris DeRubeis, a lifelong doodler. His bold paintings are on flat sheets of aluminum that give a glimmering effect to the eye. However, he isn’t the only artist featured here. Other artists at this gallery also push the boundaries of what many deem ordinary art.
No stores in Tahoe really resemble what La Belle Maison, an upscale home décor, garden and gift store, strives to be. The styles range from pieces that fit perfectly in an elegant house to a cabin in the woods. This shop features wall décor, furniture and garden items to give your home some pizzazz both indoors and out.

The gallery is 4,400 square feet of endless arrays of oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, limited edition prints, bronze sculptures, glass art, metal art, gift items, books and jewelry.
The Sun Art gallery is a collaboration between a husband and wife. David and Connie Hwang are the artists behind every piece in the gallery. You’ll walk out of the shop with an original piece of artwork, not duplicated or copied. The artists (and owners) studio is located in the gallery where they paint unique pictures of scenic landscapes.
Upon entering Wyland Gallery, visitors are plunged into a visual display of an undersea universe. Marine Life Artist Wyland has been working in environmental conservation for about 32 years.
